Imagine, Dream, Inspire Canvas - Thursday DT Post for Visible Image

Hello friends!! It is Thursday and time for my post at Visible Image!! This week I made a canvas featuring one more than last week, lol, 8 of the Visible Image stamp sets!!!  I started the canvas by spraying several Lindy's Stamp Gang mists over the canvas. I then started layering stamping. I used Sepia Archival ink for my Grunge Flourishes around the edges of the canvas. I also used it for the Retro Dots Background stamping I did.

The Imagine Dream Inspire stamps were done with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink...I let them get blurred and misted for a dreamy look.  

I added some misted lace and covered it in gesso, as well as stamping gesso onto the canvas using the Grunge Polka Dot stamp.

The chipboard tree was stamped over with the Crackled Background stamp and the Retro Dots Background  I inked the edges in Black Soot Distress ink to define it a bit more. I added the gorgeous script Bronte Border in several ink colors over the canvas, and a few Grunge Check Background stampings. For my final touch I stamped the gorgeous Large Butterfly onto acetate using Stazon Ink in black and fussy cut them out and folding out their wings for dimension.

I really had a lot of fun building up this canvas. I hope you like my project, and if any of these stamps catch your eye, please visit the store by clicking on the links! All international shipping is a flat rate of £3, such a great price!
